Architectural Technology and the Environment
Growing up in the countryside of Cornwall, I have a great appreciation for the outdoors, and love to get out as much as I can. I also enjoy a range of music genres as well as the technological side, producing my own in the past. This enjoyment parallels my interest of technology in design, being confident in the use of AutoCAD, as well as Revit, Photoshop and Twinmotion. This is the reason I chose to study Architectural Technology and the Environment (ATE) as it is where my passion lies in understanding how a building works and functions. Most recently I have begun to develop a new fold of interest in 3D Visualisation, creating real time walkthroughs and images to complement my knowledge of technical design. This allows me to be of use from sketch through to buildings regs, completion and marketing stages. Working with others in a co-operative manner is an enjoyable experience for me, though, I can also independently carry things through. I strive to achieve the highest quality work to the best of my ability, as well as being friendly and approachable within the office environment. I also have a full driving licence, and own my own vehicle, meaning transport will never be a problem.
